Community Help Line

Waukesha has a large number of resources, both governmental and private, that help citizens in powerful ways. But it’s often difficult to get involved with these groups to take advantage of the amazing resources they offer. Waukesha’s First Call for Help was established to make finding assistance easy and effective.

Simply dial 2-1-1 or call 262-547-3388 for this free, 24/7, non-emergency phone service. An operator will help you find information on housing, medical care, meal sites, FoodShare (previously “Food Stamps”) and much, much more.

Services We Provide

The Food Pantry provides more than food to our clients. Some clients can’t make it to the Food Pantry, have special dietary needs or require additional resources. Through collaborations with other advocacy groups, expertise in accessing government funding and an astute awareness of the needs of our clients, we provide a number of additional services for those who need them.

  • Delivering to the homes of clients who cannot travel to the Food Pantry due to age or disability
  • Collecting and distributing good food that otherwise would have been wasted by food producers, purveyors, farmers, caterers and restaurants through the Food Recovery Program
  • Providing additional food to income-eligible clients as an agent of the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Temporary Emergency Food Assistance Program
  • Distributing pre-packaged boxes of food to low-income senior housing sites through Stockbox, a program in collaboration with the USDA and Wisconsin’s Hunger Task Force that helps clients sit together and enjoy a full meal
  • Catering to clients with certain allergies or with particular dietary needs through the Special Diet Program

Some of these programs have reached their maximum client limits. Applicants may have to spend time on a waiting list before receiving these services.

To learn if you qualify for any of these services, contact us at 262-542-5300.
 

How to Register

We ask that you provide a few pieces of personal information upon your first visit. Once we confirm you are a Waukesha County resident, we look at your current income and living situation to determine the best way to serve you now and in the future.

  • Current proof of address such as a bill, bank statement or other similar piece of official mail for every adult household member
  • Information about your current source of income (monthly wages, unemployment compensation, or any other income)

All registration information collected is confidential. Social Security cards (or copies) are NEVER transferred and are only used to verify the number of people in a household.

*If your driver’s license does not list your current address, please bring your license plus two pieces of mail.

**If you do not have Social Security cards for each member of the family, provide alternative IDs, such as an insurance card, Forward Care information or other documentation.

Registration occurs during service hours. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before closing.

Need Our Help

The Food Pantry always welcomes new clients. We provide food and basic hygiene products to those lacking consistent resources for those items. We are an equal opportunity distributor and will help everyone we are able to, free of charge and with complete privacy. We understand that after bills, rent and unexpected financial troubles, many people are left with very little money, if any, for food. Our mission is to help people through
those times.
